We Need A Nanny & InterCheck

A National Police Check is an important pre-employment screening check for child care services, and it must be performed by third party professionals.

InterCheck Australia is a reputable background screening agency, accredited by the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) to conduct Australian National Criminal History checks and other background and Identity verification services.

Caregivers apply for a National Police Check, and it is the responsibility of the parent as the employer to verify the checks of a nanny before they care for children.

Frequently Asked Questions

Once we have received all of the required documents and your police check application has been submitted by you, we will process and submit it to the police checking services.

70% of police check results are returned within 1-2 business days. The remaining applications are processed within 3-12 business days or longer.

For applications that do take longer than two business days, we are reliant on the police to finalise these results and cannot fast track this process in any way.

You will be notified by us and your certificate instantly dispatched, as soon as the result has been finalised by the police checking services.
